System 4 for HDB flat

To kimsim :

MHI catalogue I hv shows nominal cooling capacity of MHI outdoor unit SCM80ZJ-S1 as 8 kW. Did I read it correctly?
Would this means it has higher cooling capacity of ME 7.5kW?

ME may be easier to clean ourselves but with a scheduled cleaning package, how many of us will actually bother to spend 40-60 mins to clean all 4 fcu every 2-3 months?

On this easy self cleaning feature, anyone of ME owners actually do self cleaning of fcu consistently?

Aircon meant to serve me, not d other way round, so easy clean feature of ME doesn't appeal to me leh...

I'm indifferent to looks of remote, fcu, etc. As long as it works well n don't give me problems, i'm fine.

MHI has 3 ticks energy savings vs ME 2 ticks. Shld save more energy costs right?

I can't find many factors towards ME thus far, other then its quieter n has easy cleaning feature of dust filters etc. Am I missing out on something good fr ME?

To terumo :

I can't see any clear cut advantages of ME over MHI leh.
Anything tt I shld know to go with ME? Long term reliability? Durability of compressor or fcu? Any other hidden factors?

Tks all for yr feedback n opinion.

To buyorsell,

From a technical point of view, ME equipment are of a better build.

Their after sales are better compared to MHI. (IMO)

Based on hdb info, the 8.5A limit is only applicable for old non-upgraded hdb flats? checked even my 30+ year old upgraded hdb has been provided with higher electrical loadin..

Not too sure, I guess most of Aircond company already lock at 8.5A for maximum capacity output.

Unless is condo then you can try to ask the Aircon man to adjust it maximum output.

18k btu not so much for that room? Because before i use 9000 btu, but not cold enough, so need to upgrade to 12000btu.

I worry utility bill come out will too much if use 18000btu, or it is the same power consumption?

Usually how much for single unit 18k btu? Use two 9k btu seems not nice for bedroom though. I only need unit cost though, bcos installation already have other people.

Yeah was looking forward to starmex bcos so many ppl recommend it. My 9k btu is panasonic, very disappointed with the performance.

1st you install for living room or bedroom?

If bedroom for 12btu still ok, if living room will be quite suffer.
